Group Description

The purpose of the ADAPT_CAL listserve is to provide an open forum for people, both disabled and non-disabled, to openly and freely discuss the various issues confronting the disability community of this nation.

One major reason this group was created is to put the disability community of California more in sync and cooperation with our parent organization, ADAPT. The promotion of the ADAPT philosophy of direct action, and in-your-face street-level activism is a primary focus of this group. Fighting the corrupt and unjust system that cruelly imprisons our disabled brothers and sisters in those ugly human warehouses (a.k.a. nursing homes) for corporate profits, is the primary mission of ADAPT and this group.

These issues discussed may be, but not necessarily limited to, ADA compliance, access issues (both physical and attitudinal), long-term care, IHSS and other attendant care issues, healthcare, Olmstead compliance in CA, blind and deaf community issues, developmental disability issues, education, and any issue related to disability. Other major issues, not necessarily directly related to disability are also sometimes acceptable because, as most things in life, things that happen usually have a ripple effect.

This listserve is also the where members are encouraged to post information about any events that may be occurring in the community. These events may be social, political, cultural, or just interesting events that may interest our members.

There are some types of behavior that will not be accepted here. We politely demand that none of our members engage in personal attacks or slander against other members. Spamming is not permitted. Any members who make personal, or slanderous attacks against other members will be subject to having their posts moderated until they can conduct themselves as reasonable adults. Spammers will be banned outright!

New members need to provide an appropriate name and information about self.
